The Christ in Shakespeare, Victorian (Interpreted by Charles Ellis)
This is a very interesting looking volume, published London in 1902. It is beautifully bound in green, full calf leather with gold tooling on the front, back, and spine, The spine is brown, and looks as though it has always been that color, but I suspect, from having seen this before, that the spine has been faded by sunlight, and that's why it's brown, if this is the case, one would never know it by looking at the spine, This volume has a Natural History Society Bookplate, and it measures 7 and 1/2 inches North to South, 5 and 1/2 inches East to West, and 1 and 1/2 inches thick. The pages are gilded, and the front and endpieces are in coordinating marbled paper, The text is very interesting, as it is references to Christ in all of Shakespeare's works, interpreted by Charles Ellis. This is a volume I have not seen before in my shopping,
